The thick fog enveloped his figure, a lonely form on a bridge overlooking the river below his feet. The afterlife, it had to be better than this. When had his descent into darkness begun?  Had it always been there? Whispering to him hauntingly, beckoning him to embrace it. Desolate in the dark, surrounded by nothing but regret. Wrong turns, the steps that seemed to go nowhere, climbing aimlessly. Out of focus, feeling that there was something more but wondering, yes wondering how to obtain it,...

The latest from Lezet . An experimental music project from Serbia. Pozega,Serbia The tracks on this EP are in themselves a form of musical accumulation- they are linear and gather different sound elements of disparate sonic quality as they progress, somehow lending themselves to a unified body of music. I want to thank my students (#04),my neighbours (#08), a street gusle player (#07) and the rain that almost flooded my entire country (#06) for providing the accompanying sounds for this...

I particularly admire Anastasia Vronski's release " The Kursk ". It has a dark, murky crunchy sound that is very inspiring for me. I asked her if she wouldn't mind contributing a similar track for a split release with Grove of Whispers . She sent me her track "The Ice-Breaker" and some months later when reviewing a Grove of Whispers performance I realized "oh, this is the companion piece for Anastasia's The Ice-Breaker!" I hope you enjoy it as I do. Thank you...

In February 2014, I received an offer to perform at a New York City art exhibit.  My usual modus operandi for creating music with Luciftias involves an extensive amount of post-production. Unfortunately, this means that replicating those textures in a live setting is difficult at best. How then to achieve an ambient/drone sound without resorting to synthesizers? In the past, I've recorded tracks using an eBow, guitar and effects setup but have always incorporated many overdubs in the final...

According to ancient and medieval science, aether is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial, or sublunary, sphere. This sphere was the realm of changing nature. Beginning with the Moon, up to the limits of the universe, everything was permanent, regular and unchanging – the region of aether where the planets and stars are located. Only in the sublunary sphere did the powers of physics hold sway. To go "beyond the aether" is a metaphor for...

This album came out of experiments I did trying to find new ways of making drones. The experiments proved successful but took me to a space I had not planned to go. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Listening once I turned the music off thinking I might be disturbing someone who was studying: "I hope this music wasn't bothering you." "That was music?

Tea Drones is a foray into the hypnotic world of the drone. A world where melody is redundant and texture is key. If sound could have a colour the names of these excursions are what I imagine it might be like. The album came to me in middle of 2013 whilst I was working at a call center in Canberra, Australia. During my morning and afternoon tea breaks I was often found staring at my iPhone working furiously in NanoStudio. Escaping the corporate world. Experimenting. Coming to grips with the...

Nocturnals... the feeling you get when walking through the city at night. Shadows. Things you think to see in the corner of your eye vanish when looked at straight on. The eyes you feel burning in the dark. The (maybe) paranoid feeling that you are being watched... Always, it seemed to me when I awaked into the Future, into the Everlasting Night that lapped this world, that I saw near to me, and girdling me all about, a blurred greyness. And presently this, the greyness, would clear and fade...

Or simply to meditate. He lives alone in a small town (less than 1000 people) with no direct contact with others musicians, crafting music in his "secret laboratory". A student of architecture.

Scott Lawlor, ambient musician and host of The Blind Flight podcast , brings his track "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts" to buddhist on fire. A long form organ drone. From time to time I heard the sound of words, and marked a difference. Because until then, I realized, the words I had heard had been silent. There had been no sound, I had sensed them. But silently, the way you hear words in your dreams. - Juan Rulfo, Pedro Páramo

While some music rises up, fully formed, and merely awaits capturing, many Luciftias pieces lay dormant for great lengths of time before being completed. "A Flash of Red" began life as an unnamed, roughly recorded idea in March 2011. It wasn't until a full two years later that it received additional modification to morph into what is is now. "A Flash of Red" could be the splash of gore upon the kitchen tiling. It might be the bird that strikes your windshield as you careen...

This single-track album is based on guitar drones, that are a result of multiple processing. As it is understood from the title, the piece describes the flow of images, which appear during the sleep - and there are many different scenes in this dream. And why is it "Hermit's" dream? Well, it is a long story, and firstly the picture on the album cover was the embodiment of this idea. You can see a yellow man, with a fan-like colourful substance coming in or coming out of his crown. At...

I got an email from seetyca in July. It said: Shalom, and thanks for playing seetyca. I sent back an email, the substance of which was like "you're welcome but how about playing live on my show?" It worked out well. Rather than him staying up late to fit stillstream's schedule, I did a special edition of the show where he played for two hours in the afternoon. Afternoon in Texas anyway. I then rebroadcast his performance the next time I did my show. This release then is his remastered...

Excerpt from Mystified's email suggesting this release: "Back in 2007 I had a release of hard, noisy ambient drones released on a label that I think is now defunct called "Cute Tapes". The release came in a refurbished cassette with a nice illustration and was tied with a green ribbon. It was well-received within the noise community at the Troniks board, back when that was hopping. So, I have taken these tracks, the original WAVs, before rendering, and remastered them. John, if...

After the Buddhist On Fire Release Halo From Inside The Mountains Stefan Paulus delved deeper into a world of pre-modern rituals which take place around the area of Mt. Säntis in Switzerland. He came back with modulated field recordings of chimes, bells, sound mills, unique music techniques like Talerschwingen (Coin swinging in a bowl) or Zäuerli (an overtone voice improvisation, harmonic yodel). The similarity of these instruments, songs and techniques is that they are based on the harmonic...

First release for these tracks extracted from my personal archives, mainly orphan-tracks from different sessions or projects. My method for making music remains the same through time. The difference in each decade is the evolution of the recording technology. Tracks are ordered for an "aesthetic listening experience" rather than chronologically.
